Need an example of --font value for kdialog

	I want to specify a particular font in kdialog.  kdialog --help-all shows 
that --font allows this, but does not give an example.
	I tried
		kdialog --font Monospace --textbox <filename>
but I get this message:
		QFont::setRawName(): Invalid XLFD: "Monospace"

	I looked at the QT documentation, but there are many different methods for 
doing this, and I don't see any way to determine the right one.
	Can anyone explain what format kdialog expects for the font specification?
